Bundelisga Preview: Bayern Munich - Monchengladbach

Bongarts

The Bavarian giants are gunning for an eighth successive match without defeat on Friday, but they will have to be at their best against a visiting side that has also found form.

  PROBABLE LINE-UPS
BAYERN

Neuer
Lahm, Dante, Boateng, Alaba
Javi Martinez, Schweinsteiger
Muller, Kroos, Ribery
Gomez
GLADBACH
Roma
Ter Stegen
Jantschke, Stranzl, Dominguez, Wendt
Rupp, Nordtveit, Marx, Arango
De Camargo, Hermann

It had been feared that Javi Martinez might have to sit out Friday's Bundesliga clash for Die Roten, after he injured his left foot in a training ground accident with Jerome Boateng. Club sources, however, confirmed that the knock was minor, and the Spanish midfielder should be fit to take his place among the starting XI. It will be a special day for Dante, meanwhile, who lines up against his former club for the first time since completing a move at the start of the 2012-13 season.

Gladbach coach Lucien Favre may be tempted to stick with the same team that downed Mainz in the Bundesliga's last round, when goals from Juan Arango and substitute Mike Hanke helped the side to a 2-0 home victory.

  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Bayern Munich is unbeaten in its last seven Bundesliga games, winning five and drawing twice since it last tasted defeat at the hands of Bayer Leverkusen.

  • In that period, Jupp Heynckes' charges have netted 16 times, while seeing their own goal breached on just two occasions - both of those ending in 1-1 draws.
  • Thomas Muller (right) and Mario Mandzukic share the honor of top scorer for the club so far in league competition, netting nine times each in 2012-13.
  • Borussia Monchengladbach sits eighth in the German top division, having picked up 24 points from its first 16 encounters.

  • After an indifferent start to the season, Lucien Favre's men have won on five of their last nine outings, losing just once in that same period.

  • Former Swiss international Favre took over at Monchengladbach in February 2011, and after keeping his charges in the top-flight in his first season led them to a fourth-placed finish in 2011-12.
